Introduction

From V8.0.9 Door Tablet supports Motion Sensors. These sensors are installed inside your meeting rooms and communicate with the tablets outside rooms. The main purpose of the sensors is:
  1. Automatically Check-in to meetings
  2. Terminate meetings in unoccupied rooms
  3. For free room, show on the Door Tablet display that the room is Active (V8.1)
Additional use case likely to be added in the future.

The Door Tablet sensors are easy to configure and install. The following steps are required:
  1. Prepare your sensors by first attaching them to your PC using a USB cable
  2. Configure the sensor and note some connection information
  3. Install the sensors in the ceiling of a meeting room, and provide them with power and network connection
  4. Test connection to the sensor from the tablet outside the meeting room
  5. Configure Door Tablet to indicate that sensors are used, and how you wish the system to react to motion

Sensor Configuration Types
The Door Tablet sensors come in three forms. In all cases the sensors are connected to your internal ethernet network.
  1. PoE powered and networked
  2. Ethernet with local, in ceiling, USB power source
  3. Wi-Fi with local, in ceiling, USB power source


How Door Tablet connects to sensors
Our sensors connect using IP protocols and are connected directly on your network. They appear as hosts on your LAN and do not require a room controller. When placing sensors on your network you assign them a fix IP address from your internal pool. Your network administrator should provide you with a range of IP addresses you should use when configuring sensors. You then assign a sensor per room using the Door Tablet Web UI. The Door Tablet Apps communicate with the local sensor. The Door Tablet server does not participate in the dialogue between Door Tablet and Sensors. The data stored in the Door Tablet configuration database is used by the Apps to determine which sensor to connect to and what to do with sensing events. To make testing and deployment easier, sensors addresses may be overwritten on the tablet App, while the behaviour is always governed by the Door Tablet server data.
